Parent-Teacher-Association (PTA)

 

VIS has an active and vibrant Parent Teacher Association (PTA) whose aim is to:

  • Advocate for our children and families by promoting good communication between parents and teachers.
  • Raise and distribute VIS funds in a purposeful manner to benefit the students and community.
  • Support school outreach efforts which enhance school programs and initiatives.
  • Plan and organize social events and activities that create and cultivate a sense of community at VIS.

Who is the PTA?

The PTA is YOU: Parents and Teachers. The PTA is everybody! We are a non-profit organization run by an elected 24 member Executive Committee (comprised of parents and teachers), which administers the PTA-VIS budget and activities. Monthly PTA meetings are held to plan and organize fundraising, social events, and activities. All members of the community are encouraged to attend  and become engaged in the many clubs and volunteer opportunities. The PTA makes a valuable and important contribution to the promotion of community spirit within the school with the aim of enriching life of the school.  PTA's activities serve directly and exclusively the association purpose.

There are no forms to fill out or membership fees to pay.

How do I become a member?

Easy - if you are a parent or  teacher, and you would like to get involved, simply advise one of the Executive Committee members in person or send an email to ptachair(at)ptavis.com

PTA Services to the community

Buddy Family Network: Much of what make VIS strong is the warm, welcoming community. The Buddy Family programme is a component of PTA which matches existing school families with new families to help ensure a smooth transition at VIS.  Once you are enrolled in VIS, you can be matched up with a buddy family.

The PTA Shop: We sells VIS logo clothing and accessories to boost community spirit. Funds raised by these sales are recycled back into the community through events and PTA sponsored grants.

Grants programme: Our PTA grants programme provides grants to teachers and students for the benefit of our students.

The Booster Club:  We sell food, snacks, and drinks after school. Proceeds are invested back into supporting the sports program at VIS.  

Primary School Parents Representatives: Network of parent representatives in each classroom who liaise information between the primary class teachers and parents.

Secondary Social Network: Network of volunteer parent representatives. The aim of the grade reps is to assist in andpromote opportunities for secondary parents and caregivers to offer support and connect socially.
